NYC Trying to Save 6
NEW YORK (JTA) — A multi-
million-dollar investment is being
made by New York City in an in-
tensive multi-faceted grogram
created to keep s'ec middle-class
neighborhoods with substantial
Jewish population from-more of
the kind of deterioration which
turns changing areas into slums.
The Year-eld Neighborhood Ac-
tion Program is focused on the two
principal causes of such deteriora-
tion -- street crime and block-bust-
ing — and on faster and better de-
livery of such city services as sani-
tation, street cleaning and better
street lighting. -
The six sections, designated by
Mayor John Lindsay as "stabiliSa-
lion areas," are Laurel _ ton-Cambria
Heights and South Jamaica in
Queens, Crown Heights and E.
Flatbush in Brooklyn, the Washing-
ton Heights-Inwood section in Man-
hattan and the entire Grand Con-
course section of the Bronx, which
is almost a third of that borough.
The key element in the anti-
crime phase is a new police ap-
proach, called the 'Neighborhood
Team" concept, which was de-
veloped by Police Commissioner
Patrick Murphy, formerly of De-
troit. A team of specially-trained
police officers are placed under
direct supervision of a sergeant;
who is accountable for the per-
formance of his men. Initial re-
ports indicate that the program
has succeeded ht. reducing crime.
